Border Bryologists 2001 Programme

Our meetings are to help beginners learn their mosses and liverworts, rather than high-powered recording sessions. Please bring sandwiches to all outdoor meetings, which are on Sundays, starting at 10.30 am.

You are very welcome to suggest venues for future outdoor meetings: please include Grid References and details for parking.

FEBRUARY 18th Caplar Wood, near Fownhope.

A privately owned wood adjacent to the River Wye, by kind permission of Mr Clay of Fawley Court. Meet at view point car park SO 591324

MARCH 18th Chase Wood, near Ross-on-Wye.

Long ago, Miss Armitage found Blepharostoma trichophyllum and Scapania gracilis here. Meet in the car park in Fernbank Road, SO 598231. Approaching from Market Square in Ross (N.B. one-way traffic system: Market Square must be approached from the east via Gloucester Road), go south along Walford Road (B4234) for 1 km, and turn left immediately before a children's playground on the left. The car park is on the left just into Fernbank Road.

APRIL 22nd Darnford and Catbatch, Long Mynd.

Meet by the cattle grid at SO 426976. The sheep-walks of Darnford Valley have an attractive mosaic of rocky outcrops and wet and dry soils, and the flushes in Catbatch look very promising.

MAY 13th Rhos Fiddle, Clun Forest.

Meet at the roadside at SO 208856. This wet upland heath has recently become a SWT Reserve.
